i want all information possible on the work on the roads constructed in my locality recently. when i say all information, i mean the tenders passed, awarding of tenders, total expenses incurred, width and length of the road constructed etc.. what are the right words to use for all these documents in my application so that the PIC does not reject my application on grounds of vague requests. also given the fact that a new rule in karnataka restricts the application to 150 words and one subject only.
First you get copy of sanctioned estimate under RTI Act
Second you get copy of agreement under RTI Act in which name of contractor, tender percentage, time for compleation and all other tender details available in it.
Third request inspect the measuremnet book under RTI Act
You take down notes from the Measurement book.
From which you can get relevent particulars.
You should ask for inspection of all documents connected with the work under Section 2(j) of the RTI Act. Most of your requirements can be noted down by you. You should defenitely ask copies of any of the documents which are susceptable to be changed based on your findings You may very specifically ask for copies of all documents required separately after inspection indicating as to where it is held. . After equipping with the above information you should ask for inspection of work under Section 2(j). In case you hit the gold mine use Section 4(1)(d) for further information. With all the data so collected with documentary evidence seek the help of the Leader of Opposition of your Municipal Council /Corporatin to rise it in their meeting. Give a hint to the Press in advance so that they cover the issue well
